Quoted from https://sourceforge.net/projects/sevenzip/forums/forum/45797/topic/3924838/index/page/2 :

As I can see they incorrectly use liblzma. They create LZMA stream with end_of_stream_marker, but the .lzma header contains uncompressed size. My code makes full check, so it sees error. Now I think about best ways to fix it. Maybe it must be reported as bug to squashfs project.

    Resolved following discussions with the LZMA/XZ authors, they're reasonably happy with my workaround.

    XZ support is now in Squashfs mainline (Linux kernel) and Squashfs tools, and this should be used from now on.
